I’m in Hawaii so I don’t exactly feel like updating Typewriter Poetry every day πŸ™‚ But because it’s raining, here’s a poem from April 4th.

“Couple #4”

We shortcut paradise
with an addict
in lightning canopy rain.

Adrenaline thins.
The road gives;
no walls, no brakes,

no dead end to blame.
A cruel sail
beyond sand, clay. Sea vine roots.

And god–how we screamed at each other, then.

This is really great, although not for you, I suspect.

    thanks! It’s funny that everyone always thinks these poems are about me…I’d say less than 25% of them are actually from my perspective πŸ™‚

      Whoops, sorry – it just seems so real. Consider me told.

    That’s the best kind of compliment! No apologies required πŸ™‚

    It has been really nice. I leave on the 20th, but I might come back after my birthday.

    I like them, too, especially because of their very human flaws.
